Well Wave is a targeted, noninvasive pain-relief treatment that uses Acoustic Compression Therapy to enhance range of motion, improve circulation, and alleviate pain. The treatment can improve tendonitis, plantar fasciitis, hammer toe, and a range of other conditions. It also alleviates pain and muscle tightness from soft tissue strains, dysfunction in transitional regions between tendons and muscles, and repetitive stress injuries.
Cloud 9 Therapeutic Massage
Owner Annette Bennett's background in bodywork goes back nine years, a large portion of which she spent helping chiropractors alleviate injuries associated with auto accidents and modeling for surrealist portraits. Those years proved so influential that she's currently working toward her own chiropractic license. "I want to be all about total health," she explains.
This holistic philosophy informs every aspect of Cloud 9 Therapeutic Massage, from the bodywork itself to an atmosphere designed to promote deep relaxation. A soundtrack of Indian flute music greets visitors to the dimly lit treatment room, as do the botanical fragrances of aromatherapy oils. Annette seems to derive as much satisfaction from these oils as her clients. "I like the Oriental-style essential oils,” she admits. “Sometimes I'll open the bottle and smell it, and it calms me right down."
